The String Studio synthesizer swaps the traditional oscillator, filter, and envelope pattern for real-life string instrument components. At the core of String Studio lies a new physical model of strings interacting with picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards. Through this direct approach, String Studio delivers guitars, basses, harps, clavinets, bowed instruments as well as rich and animated tones that blend the warmth, naturalness, and density of real-life with unique and innovative timbres from other-worldly instruments.
"Physical modeling provides us with the possibility to design synthesizers around the familiar components of real-life instruments. Following this approach, we can develop synthesizers capable of very realistic sounds but also extremely creative tones that still bear the organic qualities of acoustic sounds, " said Philippe Dérogis, CTO of Applied Acoustics Systems. "With String Studio, our goal was to capture the wide range of sounds and textures found in string instruments, but I am particularly pleased that we have also succeeded to seize the dynamic characteristics, responsiveness and subtleties of these instruments".
